Moss, Braun eyeing state rep seatJuly 29, 2013
From local sources
Two Jasper men are forming exploratory committees to examine the possibility of running for the District 63 state representative seat next year.
Dr. Richard Moss filed his intent to organize an exploratory committee with the Dubois County Clerk’s Office on Friday. According to the form he filled out, the Republican is creating the committee to “receive and expend funds to explore the opportunities for elected office.”
Republican Mike Braun filed his exploratory committee form June 19. Since then, Braun has announced that he will run for the position.
Once a potential candidate submits the exploratory committee form, he can collect financial donations, Dubois County Clerk Bridgette Jarboe said this morning. The filing does not commit the candidate to running for the seat, she said. The official filing period for the seats in the 2014 election opens Jan. 8.
Current District 63 Rep. Mark Messmer of Jasper has announced plans to run as a Republican for the District 48 state Senate seat that Democratic incumbent Lindel Hume plans to relinquish at the end of his term next year.
The District 63 state representative seat encompasses Bainbridge, Boone, Columbia, Hall, Harbison, Madison and Marion townships in Dubois County and parts of Pike, Daviess and Martin counties.
